I couldn’t agree more with people who are concerned about road safety in Merville.
I’m very aware of the traffic that speeds through this community and the risk this creates for residents and visitors alike. I remember all too well the tragedies when pedestrians have been hit or when cars have lost control on this stretch of road. That is why I have been raising this issue with the ministry for some months.
Late last year I was contacted by members of the Merville Road Safety Council about this issue, and in January my office arranged a meeting with this group along with representatives from the Ministry of Transportation and the CVRD.
A number of potential traffic safety initiatives were discussed at that meeting, and I have been following up with Minister Trevena and her staff to help move those along.
I hope to have good news to share soon, and I thank the good people of Merville for raising this important issue.
